Tagged: UNIX & LINUX
In UNIX, I tried to open a crontab file with -l option but getting below error.
crontab: can’t open your crontab file.
please help.. I need the fix immediately since it holding my automation work.
It looks like that the crontab file is empty. Add the job to the crontab file and try again.
How to add job to crontab file:
1. Add the jobs list in any txt file.
2. Use that txt file to add in crontab file as below and try again with your crontab -l command.
If Dharini’s fix not work, then just add an extra empty line at the end of the cron file.
